I am bummed that I have to get the rest of my braces on Monday.
  • I can hide my current braced state from the public, as long as I eat the right foods and don't smile very big.
  • Playing the clarinet is finally getting better! And now, it will get worse.
  • I enjoy that when my bottom teeth hurt, I can still eat because I can just push the food against my top teeth instead of really chewing.
  • Good grief, brushing my teeth already takes way too much time away from my life. I assume it will now double.
  • I do believe that stuff like apples and carrots (which I can now kind of chew as long as they are in small pieces and I use my back teeth) will be pretty impossible.
Okay, that's enough complaining for one day. Now, for the good stuff (otherwise known as progress pictures). My teeth continue to amaze me. My lower arch is giant, now, and my teeth are starting to line up in the front! They have a long way to go, but they are progressing faster than I even dreamed. I mean, look at the new pictures, when compared to the first day pictures.

See you on the flipside, with more bling!

So amazing how much things change!

I know it can be frustrating when you're getting used to things now, but it really does seem easier when the rest go on...perhaps 'cause you know what to expect. This can be both good and bad!!!

Good luck on Monday :)
